Although there is not enough money in the world that could tempt me to endure the awkwardness of high school all over again, there is one thing that I would go back in time to change: my prom dress. While the dress I chose was fine and dandy, it was nothing in comparison to the spectacular gowns of my youthful self's imagination. If I ever had the chance to re-do my prom night, I would opt to wear a fantastically gorgeous floor-length gown that would flatter my best features while remaining within my very limited high school student budget.
When Dress V (www.dressv.com) asked me to write a post on their prom dresses, I was given the opportunity to browse their selection and fantasize about how my prom night might have gone if I had worn a particularly beautiful dress of theirs. Are you one of those lucky gals who is about to experience her prom night in the upcoming year? If so, pay attention to these lovely dresses below:
Sound the Sirens
There's no better way to exude "sexy" and "sophisticated" than by wearing a fabulous floor-length, vibrantly-red gown. I adore the simple and elegant design of this particular piece as I find that many prom dresses have a tendency to go overboard in terms of embellishment and glittery details. As well, the minute touch of glitter on the one shoulder strap is all that is required to compliment the siren red of this show-stopper.

Although I do not have many positive experiences with taffeta, this prom dress may have what it takes to change my mind entirely! When I first sighted this beauty, I was immediately smitten by how the simplicity of its colour wonderfully contrasts the intricacy of its design; the subtle embellishments on the bodice work in perfect harmony with the eye-catching ruching of the skirt. I can only imagine that wearing this gown would be like stepping into the favourite Disney princess movie of your childhood (the fact that I just watched "Frozen" may have been a slight influence on my last sentence)!

Midnight SweetheartLike many young girls, I grew up idealizing fairy tales such as Cinderella, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty. However, upon the rude awakening of adolescence, I and many other girls discovered that such flat and cookie-cutter love stories do not occur in real life; real love is much more complex and harder to navigate than a dragon's den. Nevertheless, we still love the idea of the clock striking midnight and our handsome prince finding our glass slipper on the stairwell. For me, this dress mirrors all of those wonderful, incredibly naive notions of love; its lovely midnight blue colour and sweetheart necklace are the perfect combination of sweet and regal. As well, if you are apprehensive about revealing too much skin, the beaded cutout design of the top will help to decrease any sense of impropriety.
